Why Jim Heston chose Petoskey
The location of the multible city lots enable one to enjoy both living in Petoskey and have the solitude of the country. It is a little hard to find. I provide additional directions besides the street address.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage is located on multiple city lots, Although in town seem .secluded. Look at the Petoskey map to see this in town hideaway. Because of the proximity to the Bear River, there is an abundance of wildlife year round. Large pine trees and other mature shade trees along with flower gardens create a park like setting.

Good Location and Value
The property owner was very helpful upon arrival. He took the time to show us the house and suggest things to do in the area. My wife and I were very happy with our stay.
We had a great time at Jim's home. It is exactly as pictured, it is a home/cabin feeling in a nature environment. It is less than two minutes to the main thorogh fare and yet not in the heavy district area. The location was perfect and it was nice to have a home instead of a hotel room. Jim was so kind and pleasant, he was helpful and recommended some great places to eat and see. We hope to return in the near future, thank you Jim!
Very sweet rental!
Owner was very accomodating. The house was very clean and a great location. We walked to town every evening.
Comfortable and Charming
The proximity to the nature trail walk to downtown Petoskey is wonderful especially because my small dog was with me. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but also has easy access to the main road so the best of both. I enjoyed the quaint cottage house and surrounding yard/garden. The inside is both comfortable and charming. I would stay here again. Thank you.
I hope these folks return. I couldn't ask for more.
Trails to Rails Bike Enthusiasts
This home is a great location for bike enthusiasts who want easy access to three bike trails in the Petoskey area. The house is very comfortable for a group of 4. If I could request one change, it would be a bit more attention paid to cleaning the floors and carpets.
Thanks for your thoughts The carpet is scheduled for replacement this fall
A quick bike ride to downtown and lakeshore, but needs cleaned
We enjoyed the location and amount of space we had, however the house has not had a thorough clean in some time. This was uncomfortable for those with allergies to dust and pets. The Little Traverse Wheelway is wonderful which you can reach via the Bear River Valley trail that is a block away from the cottage. Jim is a kind and responsive owner, and so I regret not being able to rate it higher.
Good dogs are welcome smoking is not. People appreciate the convenience of being in town and having an out of town atmosphere. Lots of room makes it possible to have two gardens- including a Monarch butterfly garden, and fruit trees. There is plenty of room for boat trailer off street parking. Walk or bike the Bear River Path to downtown Petoskey where one will find wonderful restaurants and shopping. Its entrance is at the end of the block. This location not only provides easy access to; historic Petoskey's restaurants, parks, shops, near by casino, art galleries, concerts, and all the outdoor activities listed above, but a short trip (1/2 hour to an hour to historic Fort Michilimac in Mackinaw City, and Fort Mackinac on beautiful Mackinac Island. The drive across the Mackinac Bridge offers spectacular views of; The Straits of Mackinac, the Les Cheneaux Islands, Drummond Island, Bois Blanc Island and Mackinac Island all accessible by boat or ferry. If you like lighthouses, there are 21 of them within a 50 mile radius of Petoskey.
